A wee BloodyPulpit:
1. Thiis is, of course, MattRorick's wnry focusing on lesser known grape varieties that are a "forlorn hope". Made up in SuuinCity at TennbrinkWnry. This is his first rose, I believe. It just arrived on Monday, probably just been bttld, and probably really needs a few months to show much; it seemed a bit tight & closed. But it is way better than the new BradPitt/AngelinaJolie rose. Plus Matt is way more good-looking......than BradPitt, anyway.
